YASD: saving in bad state

If you are using a swap for free action (like a ring instead of rPoison, etc), make sure to save and exit with the free action ON. It is very easy to come back to a game and forget that your dl 39 character is playing musical chairs with his rings.

You can die from poison too if you forget that you need to swap, but yes FA is the default and the state you assume you are in.
Generally speaking, in my experience a game picked up after a break is the most dangerous time for @.

I remember when I picked up my dwarf priest game after a long hiatus, I spent an hour or two making sure I remembered what all the controls were, checking (and changing) spell macros, figuring out my resistances and swap gears, remembering strategies to fight stuff, etc. BEFORE making even a single in-game turn elapse. I went on to win, so it was worthwhile.

Try inscribing the temporary swap with ^. (ask for confirmation before running). I used to do that with shovels, but it should work for rings, too.
